Knee Pain Relief Bergen County NJ
Although any joint in your body can become inflamed and develop a degenerative condition, knees are the most likely to develop a chronic pain syndrome. Fact is your knee joints are gradually wearing away from the cradle to the grave. Several degenerative conditions like osteoarthritis can occur when bones begin to rub against each other. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that causes the body's immune system to mistakenly attack healthy tissue and bone. The synovial membrane that covers the knee joint also can become swollen and inflammed. Post traumatic injuries from meniscal tears, ligament strains and tendinitis can contribute to knee instability resulting in additional wear-and-tear to the joint.
